I'm on 12.10 and I use Synergy to share my mouse between my laptop and desktop monitors. I tend to start the synergys daemon manually, but I'd like for it to start automatically after boot. Now I've found the answer for synergy in particular, but I'm left wondering what the standard way of adding startup services is.

What's the way to add such startup services nowadays? Is there a graphical tool to add and manage them?

apt-get install bum
